Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

Finally after almost a year and a half and three iuis!

I had to share my story because I have stalked this site my whole time while ttc. I am 35 and my hubby is 33. We have a beautiful 3 year old boy that we conceived at the first try naturally. This is why a diagnosis of secondary unexplained infertility hit hard. Why all of a sudden we are having issues? I temped and used a bajillion ovulation tests. Our tests all came out normal : hsg,sperm analysis etc. The specialist wanted to try three iuis before moving to IVF. The first two iuis I took 50mg of clomid and trigger shot and the timing was perfect on both. The second time I only had one mature follicle. The third time is a charm! At my request, for the last iui we increased clomid to 100mg and I had three mature follicles.
Symptoms:
Days 1-2 piui: cramping from iui
Days 3-4 piui: nothing
Days 5-6 piui: sharp pains a few times on lower right. Extremely sore nipples. Can't even hug hubby.
Days 7-9 piui: Nipples not as bad but breasts hurt a little. bloating and tired my son and mother are sick so not sure if I was getting sick
Days 10-11 piui: convinced af is coming. Bloated only slightly increased cm. wearing a pad just waiting to see blood. My breasts do not even hurt anymore. Drank 3 glasses of wine two nights in a row.
Day 12 piui: period should be here by now. Still convinced it will come but just for fun figured I would test. First with a cheapie and almost missed the light line.then I confirmed with a digital. Holy hell!!! It worked!!! I'm so excited and nervous, just hoping for a healthy pregnancy. Going for a bld test Monday.
Good luck to everyone and do not give up hope!!! Xo

Best wishes for a beautiful pregnancy and baby :)

...and thanks for posting...This year, I've been trying for IUIs with and without meds...with and without triggers and a couple months in between with no luck.  I'm on my last IUI tww right now before we take a break again for Nov/December.  Dreading taking another pregnancy test in 5 days and seeing another BFN...so this post just gave me a smile and some hope :)

Congrats again!
